As a lifelong resident of the 757, I believe it will be hard for a major


professional franchise to sustain itself in Hampton Roads. So much of our population is made up of transients and transplants from other parts of the country who are here because of military service, and all of those people bring with them their loyalties to other teams around the country. Hell, even the natives, such as myself, wouldn't be super likely to switch lifelong allegiances to a new pro team in town just be cause it's local. I know I wouldn't.

I just dont see how it's sustainable
